Developer: SIE Japan Studio

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Release Date: December 6, 2016

Played Platform: PS4

 

This is an amazing game with beautiful scenes, but not my style of game-play.

Things I liked:

  • Interesting concept for a game
  • Cinematic
    • Scenes when Trico helps you when you’re about to die after jumping off
    • Should be made into a movie
  • Trico acts like a pet, although his big size
  • The FOV can see yourself and Trico with the scenery behind
  • Become invested into the characters while going through the game

Things I did not liked:

  • Had trouble in the very beginning
    • No guidance of what to actually do
  • Button smashing mechanic
    • Need to smash buttons in order to “wake up” after death and break free from the enemies
  • Trico
    • Had trouble controlling him – didn’t know that he needs to see you so that he’ll do the action
  • Camera
    • Angles makes your character movement weird and hard to control
    • Clunky movement controls
    • Some parts of the game becomes a plat-former, but due to the camera, it’s tough – constantly falling off after a jump
